David Bowie
Genre : Rock, Pays : UK
Ziggy Stardust, The Thin White Duke, The Berliner. He has worn a number of masks since some spaceship dropped him off near London more than 30 years ago. Since that day David Bowie has been playing tricks on his audience by constantly reintroducing himself through new characters.

What to expect?

His stage performances change too, and often. He describes himself as a conceptualist rather than a musician. But who is he today? The premiere of David Bowie’s world tour in Copenhagen in October 2003 gave us an idea of what to expect from David Bowie at Roskilde Festival 2004.

A reborn rock'n'roller

On that occasion a reborn rock‘n’roller went on stage, backed by a solidly rocking new Reality-album. New songs like "New killer star" and "Never get old" shone along with sing-along-classics like "Changes", "Ziggy Stardust" and "Fame". There was variation, like the brilliant jazzy "Bring me the disco king", also from the new album. But the keyword was definitely rock – which just does not come any more thorough than on the sweaty and bitter "I’m afraid of Americans".

An icon

When Bowie is performing there is an icon on stage. A personality constantly mixing the classic and the modern. Bowie is genuine and fake at the same time. Gold and plastic in the same mould. In spite of the season (autumn), he looked like a cow on the first grass of spring, when he played his world tour premiere in Copenhagen. It was clear that he had a message to give – and it was about rock‘n’roll. Energy and loads of guitar are guaranteed ingredients when David Bowie performs live at Roskilde ‘04. And those who find their way to the front of the stage get to feel like heroes. Just for one day
